I had a hard time getting into this, but I was expecting something different. I was expecting a fast paced YA story that I would devour. Once I realized the author‘s intent was more to give history and to honor a heroic life, I settled right in 💙 This definitely reads more like non-fiction.

Soldier Boy | Keely Hutton

This may be YA, but it deserves to be on EVERY reader‘s list. Hutton weaves together the true story of one boy‘s experience as an abductee forced into The Lord‘s Resistance Army (LRA) in Uganda and a fictitious, yet realistic, account of a boy who escapes. Told in alternating perspectives, each chapter will have you eager for more. GO GET THIS!!

Mehso-so

I'm so frustrated by this book. I didn't love it, but it ended on a cliffhanger! 😫 Why?!! Anyone else read this series? Is it worth continuing?

Kaylamburson I loved this series!! I'm usually not big into series, but this one had me hooked, even the prequels. However, I really liked the first one, so maybe it wouldn't be worth it for you to continue. I thought The prequels were even more fascinating though. 2y
Onlaughterandliteracy @Kaylamburson oh that‘s good to know you were even more fascinated! I will most likely continue it, but I‘m in no rush! 2y
